I also have advanced training in Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative. I believe growth comes from enhancing our understanding of ourselves and learning to make choices that can lead us to greater freedom and lasting positive change. Removing symptoms, changing self-defeating patterns, improving self-esteem, working with our strengths, and developing healthy relationships are each a part of this meaningful process. As an Assistant Clinical Professor in the UCSD School of Medicine, I teach and supervise residents in the Psychiatry Residency Training Program.

I am trained in several therapeutic modalities including EMDR, CBT , ACT, and Mindfulness, and I enjoy helping those dealing with relationship issues, parenting challenges, eating issues, and addictions.
Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

I use primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while incorporating various techniques from Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Life has its ups and downs. At times, we may struggle to navigate the downs leading to us feeling lost and confused. It is normal for us to engage in coping skills that help us feel good in the moment, though sometimes that leads to us feeling not so good in the long run. Asking for help is hard and we often don't speak up, especially with the stigma attached to mental health. I want you to know that you don't have to suffer alone, there is help out there, and you deserve to live a life you enjoy.

I utilize CBT tools, somatic therapy concepts including biofeedback, and Gottman relationship to tools help you cope with life.
Life is hard. Sometimes, life can seem unbearable, especially when difficult events like trauma, loss, or relationship conflicts happen and lead to depression and anxiety. During difficult times, you may believe that you have no choice but to suffer in secret, especially with the continuing stigma of mental health issues. However, I want you to know that you don't have to suffer on your own. Seeking therapy can be a daunting and scary process, and finding the right therapist for you can be difficult and confusing.

My training is in CBT and ACT, clearly the most effective formats for issues of depression, anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, and a variety of other issues.
After 35 years in the San Diego area, I feel particularly well suited to working with clients with a variety of "problems in living." Managing stress, lifestyle balance, coping with relationship issues, and workplace difficulties affect us all, and having professional support and input is now not only acceptable, but crucial. And, research has shown that of all the factors that are key in predicting a positive outcome in any form of therapy, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is the most important. And that is my focus!

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in La Jolla or for a La Jolla CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
